I don't know if you ever been to this region or in Israel specifically , but there's something you need to understand . This country exists under constant threat of annihilation , and this is not some phantom idea put in our mind by our government , this is the harsh and cruel reality .
If and when our enemies will lay down their weapons - there will be peace ,
If and when Israel lays down her weapons , she'll ceases to exist …
Our philosophy is not fighting for peace , our philosophy is to be ready for war , or as the phrase goes - si vis pacem, para bellum .
I know you probably see this differently , but you don't live here .
